With his first goal of 2011, Cunningham, is now tied with Jaime Moreno for the Major League Soccer All-time scoring lead, and broke the Crew all-time record of 62 he held with Brian McBride.

Goalkeeper William Hesmer made a season-high seven saves including stopping a penalty shot in the 73rd minute and notched his 40th career shutout.

The Crew played with a man advantage for the eight time this season as midfielder Shea Salinas of Vancouver was sent off in the 77th minute for a hard tackle on Josh Gardner who assisted on Cunningham’s goal 13 minutes later.

The Crew is 7-5-6 on the season, 2-4-3 on the road.

CREW-FIRE POST-MATCH NOTEBOOK

The Chicago Fire did not qualify for the MLS Playoffs for only the second time in their brief history.

They’ve been in the league since 1998.

Under head coach Carlos de los Cobos, the Fire finished 4th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 9-12-9 good for 36 points.

This season did not start off any better and de los Cobos was fired and Frank Klopas was hired to turn things around. The team had gone 11 straight matches without a win before they beat Columbus at Crew Stadium, 1-0 on Sunday. The Crew’s first home loss of the season is at the hands of one of the league’s worst teams. Go figure that one folks!

The Crew have had their problems all-time vs. the Fire. In 43 meetings, they’re 12-21-13 overall, 6-9-6 at Crew Stadium.

* Nine-year Chicago Fire veteran Logan Pause tied Jesse Marsh for fourth on the club’s all-time regular season appearance list with his 200th match coming on March 26 vs. Sporting KC. The Fire captain then took over sole possession of the fourth spot with his appearance in the team’s 2-1 loss to Seattle on April 9.

Having averaged a minimum of 21 matches in each of his nine years with the club, if Pause’s form holds true for this season, he will move into second place all-time in Fire regular season games. Next on the list for the captain is the player he modeled himself after, Chris Armas, who appeared in 214 regular season matches for the club from 1998-2007.

* The Chicago Fire Soccer Club has announced that midfielder Marco Pappa has been selected to the Guatemalan Men’s National Team ahead of the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The 23-year-old playmaker will represent his country when they play Group B games.

The talented winger, who has scored four goals during the 2011 MLS campaign, will miss at least three Fire matches while on national team duty with Los Champines.

* The Jeff Cunningham watch continues. The Crew forward will become the club’s all-time leading goal scorer, an honor he currently shares with former teammate Brian McBride with 62. Cunningham, who holds the all-time game-winning-goal record with 39, enters his next match with 132 career goals scored, which is just one behind all-time MLS leading scorer Jaime Moren0.

* Andres Mendoza recorded his first MLS assist on Wednesday night, June 8, against Real Salt Lake. The milestone was also the Columbus Crew 750th as a team. The first ever assist was recorded by Brian McBride in the Crew’s very first match at Ohio Stadium on April 14, 1996 against D.C. United.

* 18-year-old forward Aaron Horton, the Crew’s first ever Home Grown Player in club history made his Major League Soccer debut on Wednesday, June 8, coming on in the 89th minute as a substitute for his idol, Jeff Cunningham.

A native of Lewis Center, Ohio, and product of Olentangy Orange High School and the Crew Soccer Academy, Horton spent one season at the University of Louisville, and helped the Cardinals advance to the NCAA Men’s College Cup for the first time in school history and finished as the national runner-up.

He spent the 2009-2010 season with CSA and was a member of the Crew’s 2010 USL Super 20′s National Championship team last summer, where he was named tournament MVP.
